Nordica Patron Skis - Men's - 2012/2013 - $749.00

The powder-loving Nordica Patron skis let you bring your bag of freestyle tricks into the backcountry. Built for days that take you all over the mountain, these skis excel in powder and they'll hold their own on variable terrain. 113mm waist offers incredible flotation in deep powder. Powerful wood core with glass and carbon reinforcements produces a lightweight ski with playful responsiveness. Patron skis feature an early rise tip and tail that resist diving into deep snow and make it easy to ski backward. Tip rocker extends 420mm from snow contact point and tail rocker extends 400mm from snow contact point. Low, broad nose extends over the snow just enough to enhance flotation without becoming really noisy and vibrating on groomed terrain at high speeds. Standard camber underfoot enhances maneuverability on groomers and variable snow; when weighted, 50% of the ski contacts the snow. Cambered and rockered profile enhances handling in deep snow, making it easy to take advantage of every feature on the mountain. Directional twin-tip taper slightly favors skiing forward, but it also lets you ride switch and land jumps backward. Nordica Patron skis require bindings with wide brakes. Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo. - $749.00
